My husband and I wanted a girl for so many more reasons besides the obvious. It goes much deeper and theres a lot behind it but thats besides the point right now. However, we said we would be content either way. Why not? Every healthy baby is a pure miracle!
When we found out it was a boy (after opening our cake box to see if it was a boy or girl cake), the whole room all of a sudden had a rain cloud in it. Before we found out, my whole family told me noooo its a GIRL, when I would say I feel like its a boy. As if a boy were taboo. Now its like EVERYONE feels bad for me and its making it even harder for me. Even my husband is acting different, not rude ... his disappointment is just very obvious even when he tries to hide it. I feel alone and have been crying every day since then. I literally feel rejected by everyone except my son ... who wanted a brother lol.
And im sick of people saying ohhh things will change when hes here. I KNOW that!!! But what do I do in the meantime, I still have FOUR months! I want to enjoy this pregnancy but everyone seems to be no longer interested when I talk baby stuff and try to plan so I can get exited. It really hurts... It makes me wish I didnt find out til it was born so people would stay exited with me this whole time! I need the support.....
EDIT: MY SON AND I ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO ARENT "ACTING DISAPPOINTED". As I said, I am still happy but I want to SHARE this experience with people. Every time I talk baby boy stuff no one engages in the conversation anymore... people are all of a sudden NOT interested. In all actuality, my FAMILY wanted me to have a girl even more!
